Chapter 97: Well-Known in the Outer Gate
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
As one of the Outer Disciples, Yi Xiaoguang was more powerful than Su Mo.
Even if he used only 30% of his strength, Su Mo would not be able to take the blow.
Let alone this powerful blow.
The power from the white beam was very great and Su Mo would be struck by it at any moment.
With his eyes red and increased sword momentum, Su Mo was ready to use the power of the sword will.
He knew that even with the power of the sword will, he was no match for Yi Xiaoguang, but he might be able to survive the blow.
At this instance, a black figure suddenly appeared before Su Mo.
Upon seeing the black figure, Su Mo heaved a sigh of relief.
He was safe.
The black figure stood in front of Su Mo. With a wave of his hand, the white beam instantly disappeared like snow melting in the spring without a trace.
The sudden change of events took Yi Xiaoguang by surprise. He frowned upon seeing the person who stood in front of Su Mo.
The black figure was the young Outer Elder, Wang Hui.
He was Su Mo’s Senior Brother.
“Yi Xiaoguang, let the matter drop!” said Wang Hui, looking at Yi Xiaoguang.
Upon hearing that, Yi Xiaoguang raised his eyebrows and coldly asked, “Elder Wang, this guy has killed more than 10 members of our Sky Alliance, and you want me to let the matter drop?”
“It’s a known fact, on the stage of Life and Death, everyone has agreed to put his life at stake!”
Wang Hui shook his head and said, “Are you telling me that the Sky Alliance are sore losers? So embarrassing!”
Yi Xiaoguang became speechless and his face turned grave. He shouted, “Anyway, this guy has to die!”
Immediately after saying this, Yi Xiaoguang’s figure flickered and he started to attack Su Mo again.
Wang Hui shouted as his face changed. He sent a blow at Yi Xiaoguang. It was a huge Palm Print, which was extremely powerful.
The Palm Print not only directly counteracted Yi Xiaoguang’s attack but also landed heavily on his body.
Yi Xiaoguang was shocked and thrown backward dozens of meters. Blood trickled from the corner of his mouth.
“Wang Hui, are you determined to protect this small fry?” Yi Xiaoguang shouted.
He was very furious. Never had he thought that Su Mo meant so much to Wang Hui.
“I’ve been merciful to you even though you showed no respect to me. If you still don’t come to your senses, I’ll have no qualms about killing you!”
Wang Hui’s face was expressionless and he exerted the authority of an elder.
“You… Well! All right! You win!”
Yi Xiaoguang’s face turned blue.
Being one of the Top 10 Outer Disciples and a member of the Sky Alliance, Yi Xiaoguang had a bright future in front of him. He had never had to put up with anyone, as even those ordinary Outer Elders were respectful to him whenever they saw him.
However, Yi Xiaoguang was a little bit afraid of Wang Hui.
Not only was Wang Hui an Outer Elder with unfathomable strength, but also he was Elder Wei’s disciple. If he continued to oppose him, Wang Hui might kill him.
“Wang Hui, I’ll put this matter aside for the moment. But I’ll definitely report this to my Senior Brother Duan when he comes back from his cultivation. There’s no way I’m going to let the matter rest!” Yi Xiaoguang said as he looked at him darkly and grit his teeth.
His gaze instantly fell on Su Mo, who was standing behind Wang Hui. With a wry smile, he said, “Su Mo, you will die at the hands of the Sky Alliance. No one can protect you!”
After saying this, Yi Xiaoguang turned around and left.
The members of the Sky Alliance looked ghastly. No one had expected Wang Hui to show up.
Since Yi Xiaoguang had left, there was no reason for them to stay on, so they left as well.
“Su Mo, how are you?”
“Senior Brother Su, are you OK?”
After the disciples of the Sky Alliance had left, Li Feng and Niu Xiaohu immediately rushed up to Su Mo and asked him.
“Don’t worry, I’m fine!”
Su Mo forced out a smile to reassure them.
Immediately, Su Mo turned to Wang Hui and said, “Thank you, Senior…!”
Before Su Mo could finish his sentence, Wang Hui interrupted him and said, “It’s better for you to have your injury treated! After you’ve recuperated, come and look for me.”
Having said that, Wang Hui left.
Su Mo was stunned. Since he could not do anything, he left with Li Feng and Niu Xiaohu toward their abode.
The crowd dispersed as well.
After the crowd had dispersed, news about the incident at the Decisive Struggle Hall spread quickly through the entire Outer Gate.
Su Mo, the new disciple, had killed more than 10 members of the Sky Alliance at the Decisive Struggle Hall!
There was an uproar in the Outer Gate!
After Duan Jingtian gloriously defeated Jin Yang, his reputation went up. Unexpectedly, someone killed members of the Sky Alliance and that was a hard slap in Duan Jingtian’s face!
Su Mo was well-known in the entire Outer Gate. Before long, everybody knew him.
Regardless of what was happening outside, Su Mo went back to his room.
He slowly sat down with a heavily injured body.
He was terribly hurt. His internal organs were badly injured and three of his ribs were broken.
“Yi Xiaoguang, you’ll die in my hands one day!” the furious Su Mo said.
After he calmed himself down, he began to treat his injuries.
Su Mo had lots of healing elixirs. They were the rewards from his earlier tasks.
He picked out a bottle of healing elixir and swallowed some. Then Su Mo started to refine the efficacy of the elixir to help him to recover.
Time passed quickly.
In the twinkle of an eye, one month had passed.
A cloud permeated the cliff with the clouds folding and unfolding.
A young man in green stood in the midst of the fog, holding a longsword embedded with a blue gem.
Stepping, Qi operating, hands shaking, and sword drawing—every movement he made was smooth and steady.
The strokes displayed by the young man were simple. Those were the basic movements.
He kept stroking and increasing the speed of his strokes. And in no time, he had displayed uncountable strokes.
After a long while, the young man stopped and stood with his sword.
“Even though these are basic strokes and they’re not powerful, they brought my understanding towards the sword techniques to a higher level!”
Su Mo smiled and said to himself.
The swordplay that he was cultivating was of the Lower Lv 3. As the foundation of his swordplay was very weak, no matter how he practiced, there was a barrier that he was unable to break through.
Thus, Su Mo had been practicing basic swordplay for the past few days to have a better understanding of the sword.
Apparently, although he did not increase in strength, Su Mo was much more comfortable with his swordplay and it was like second nature to him.
“It’s time for me to go to Senior Brother since I’ve almost recovered.”
Su Mo mumbled and left the cliff.
It must have been a severe injury for Su Mo to take one whole month to recuperate.
Previously, Wang Hui had told Su Mo to look for him after he had recuperated. He had wanted to thank Wang Hui for saving his life as well.
“Look, that’s Su Mo!”
“That’s the traitor! He’s so audacious to kill the people of the Sky Alliance!”
“He looks so ordinary! I don’t think he’s as good as what others have said!”
As Su Mo walked on the street, some of the disciples who knew Su Mo started to gossip about him.
Su Mo smiled bitterly. He had become the hot topic of the Outer Gate!
Everywhere he went, there would be people who recognized him.
